The Neglected World of the Workplace Trainer
Elshafie, Marwa
International Journal of Education and Literacy Studies, v2 n2 p31-42 Apr 2014
The aim of this small-scale research is to explore the hidden world of the workplace trainer. Four trainers from a training institute in Qatar were interviewed and asked about their opinions of the employee as a learner, the trainer's work, and the role of quality compliance in the training process. After transcribing and analysing the semi-structured interviews, several themes concerning the employee as a learner emerged such as the employees' motivation and the effects of the workplace environment on learning. The findings also showed the trainers' need for an adequate professional development plan and a reconsideration of their power inside the classroom. Regarding the quality compliance, there were various insights and suggestions for improvement. The results of this study are important to any workplace trainers, human development, and quality compliance employees or anyone interested in knowing more about the world of adult learning.
